October 15th

Networking is on the move. Compute, storage, and applications are all now born in the cloud and consumed as a service. The network, however, has remained behind, mired in the complexity and cost of do-it-yourself approaches. Until now! The Alkira Cloud Services Exchange is first and only global unified network platform delivered as-a-service. It’s groundbreaking innovation offers Enterprises a consistent and dramatically simplified, networking experience for on-premise, cloud, and multi-cloud environments with integrated network and security services, end-to-end operational visibility, full controls, and governance. With Alkira, the entire end-to-end network is drawn on a digital design canvas, provisioned in 1-click, and is ready for use in minutes. No hardware to procure, no software to download, and no cloud to learn.

Join Amir Khan, CEO & Founder of Alkira and Matt Hoag, Senior Enterprise Architect at Koch Industries, an American multinational corporation, and the second largest privately held company in the United States, with over 120,000 employees and annual revenue in excess of $110B. Koch subsidiaries are involved in energy, manufacturing, pulp and paper, ranching, finance, investing and other industries.

In this interactive keynote session Koch will discuss their  journey to a modern network that operates in full synergy with a cloud. You will learn what challenges Koch Industries have faced on their cloud adoption journey, why they have chosen an Alkira solution over hardware-based or do-it-yourself (DIY) alternatives, and how they have realized their vision of as-a-service network delivery for a variety of cloud deployment use cases. Leveraging Alkira’s solution, Koch was able to reduce their TCO by 40% and achieve unprecedented agility by expanding its cloud infrastructure from a single cloud to a multi-cloud in 1 day instead of months.

The Network. Reinvented for Cloud.
